government's nice special tax it's one of the measures they use in place to try to secure the next tranche of money the country needs to bankruptcy the extra tax which has doubts about another three percent of people. supposed to help plug some of the massive deficits in the budget enough to move in a year's salary cuts rise in living costs people have already at break in the last two years. erica is from the opposition me title pay he tells me how the expanded rapidly in recent months as more people hit that financial reform. on. situation know there are thousands and dozens of people who will not quit
because of. people's desperation has become increasingly evident on the streets of queens violence has repeatedly play can out between via place and protest as she states through even more clashes parliament and feted yet another austerity measure in the fall of any property tax where organizing all of this. to put greece on the area may just for political reasons. greece and critics do not need. many people in greece now question just him it is the thing control unfortunately today very a leaders in your resume are the bankers. there. is mr. bunker. again and again and

a country now at risk of having financial the democratic deficit as well. the parliament building in athens well the e.u. may be throwing billions of afghans to prop up its economy and create the appearance of stability but the greek crisis has now grown too big to be contained according to patio to satiric a sociology professor in athens. i think that the big question facing us today is not whether we are going to default but how we are going to default i mean all the measures taking by this throwing up by the european union that is to be on the i.m.f. lead one way or the other to some sort of default some sort of moneths default but this new fault is going to be accompanied by newest even concert or stare at the mess or some sort of so somebody is for example we had this summit meeting on july
twenty first and there was all this hope that the new a bailout package that was on their way. come september and the black veil starts from the part of the european union concerning the last payment of the previews bailout package it's bailout b. not company and by extremists terrorism is there's the demand for a complete state assets and then again more austerity more recession. give us the engine of the of the productive capacity of this country i mean this is a vicious circle something that this must stop i think that does a society as a country we have the times to default on our own our own terms which means immediate stop of payments to the death immediate exit of greece from the euro zone from the euro member you can find all the latest developments on greece and your crisis moments after they happen on our twitter stream that's it twitter dot com

our left reading the writing on the wall in many areas it's in the same as before going to fare from in some areas it's getting more worse and he's now a r t congress. with freedom and democracy still elusive in egypt the future for libya is also clouded in uncertainty. and there will be a new government that will not necessarily be more democratic or more humane but will be an ally or i would say in fact a proxy coming up later this hour while libya's interim government struggles for full control of the country skepticism surrounding those who will benefit most from the revolution starts to creep in. and the shadow of an eminent u.s. veto clouding palestinian statehood at the u.n. security council as a guest both looks all but certain. but first the standoff continues in northern kosovo with local serbs reinforcing their barricades in an ongoing dispute over
border crossings situations also led to nato sending more troops to the area already fraught relations between serbia and kosovo plunged to new depths on tuesday after nato forces tried to dismantle the road blocks provoking a violent clashes with the serbs for all the latest on this i'm joined by our tease alexei the live in the region alexey so as any water been thrown on this fire yet is there any signs of things calming down so far. well for now the situation really seems to be rather call. everything seems to be quiet and peaceful here in. the town which is split between. serbs. indication that the situation could be. nearest future because we went to the barricades manmade barricades organized by the. last night and we saw that. there are barricades with.
the roads to block these roads. for the cost of a police. helicopter. flying into the region every. understand that those helicopters are bringing fresh troops to the border crossings to. the situation. since violent clashes at the border between. protecting the. almost a dozen. hospitals with different. because . they were the ones who provoked. at the same time they say they had to use rubber bullets. in hospitals here. who delivered with injuries they are delivered with.
this whole situation driving around the city we've seen many. more than four years . flags hanging around the. town as well as many banners on the streets saying that. this basically reflects the mood it is rather calm the situation could be escalating any minute. in the first place . well this is. july this year when the police decided to pull checkpoints at the border crossings they decided to impose a trade embargo on the serbs living in kosovo from. the. supplies. the locals reacted to furiously by putting manmade barricades. with the police with the forces so this situation is rather. stable for.
international reaction to that with. the russian foreign ministry saying that it expressed deep concerns over the situation saying that it may seem that this is just a minor border crossing dispute but in fact that. the situation in the region the region which as we know certainly has already been subjected to a great deal of stress it's already so really interesting to see what developments we'll see in the near future here in this rather volatile region with here and keeping. track of all the latest details. with all the latest information. for us from the tributes to kosovo where the standoff continues over the disputed border checkpoints thank you. or you can find all our latest stories and more on our website r.t. dot com here's what's a click away right now. if you missed out on the frankfurt motor show no worries
just come on here to moscow where government officials managed to blow more than a hundred fifty million dollars on a luxury cars. and a police officer attacked by a muslim man in brussels after he demanded the man's wife remove her veil full coverage of that story plenty more at r.t. dot com. election fever will soon be spreading across russia with december's parliamentary vote followed by the presidential runoff in march next year president who now said he does not plan to compete for a second term aligned his view on what the election means for the country as he spoke with the country's mainstream media in a news conference for more on this hundred r.t.s. and italian overcoat. i want to tell you so what exactly did the president have to
say. mostly spoke about the upcoming presidential election of two thousand and twelve and why. the reasoning behind his suggestion. of being the man for the top job in the country one of the reasons that he names was had better ratings among russian russians than the current president himself. also said that there's no such thing as power struggle between him and prime minister putin as they both have the same goals of serving their country and their people nonetheless he hopes that he does hope to win the election and also. speculations about. the fact that it is a done deal absolutely irresponsible as in the end of the day itself for the people to decide who. their president is going to be. it's up to the citizens to elect just words it's the truth any politician could lose an election along with
his or her political. history as well as other countries. anything can happen. determination. of people who. are able to highlight the key points for a candidate or a party will by turning them down that's what democracy is about. surely our. speaking out. said she would not say he doesn't want to remain at his post. she was dismissed. and there's no need to. republic but a presidential republican such statements are simply unacceptable.
libya's national transitional council says it won't form an interim government until the whole country is liberated the forces have already taken the airport in the fugitive colonel's hometown of sirte one of the last remaining strongholds reinforcements were called. assault in the face of strong resistance as civilians continue fleeing the besieged city and tire war activists. brian becker says. the problems in the country. clearly they're not protecting civilians when they're bombing cities that are considered to be. when they're killing people not because they've done something wrong but because their own political belief. are contrary to what nato wants in terms of the kind of government they want for libya so i think that they need to be brought to justice i think though unless there's
a very strong international movement for human rights in this instance i think it's unlikely they will be brought to court but the goal of the nato powers is that carry out regime change so that the khadafy government is gone once and forever and that there will be a new government that will not necessarily be more democratic or more humane but will be an ally or i would say in fact a proxy a client perhaps a puppet of western powers in this country that has the largest oil reserves in all of africa the ninth largest oil reserves in the world i think that real goal of the nato powers is that take control over libya's vast resources which we know are a great treasure the palestinian bid for statehood has made a strong start at the u.n. security council with up to nine members a number acquired to pass the vote promising their support the bids already been forwarded to a special admissions committee for approval before a vote observers say at this stage it's at this stage that the us is most likely to
try to install the process in an effort to avoid having to veto it critics say such a move could be a blow to its credibility as a mediator among the international bodies indorsing the bid the european parliament called the palestinian quest for statehood a legitimate target meanwhile israel has yet again provoked criticism from much of the world community after approving more settlements on occupied palestinian territory a senior official tells r.t. unconditional us support and aid are a major factor in the country's behavior. it's very important what they will be saying because. you're going to come through to other members of the security council and i think it's an important message for us that a business out of of the european people saying loud and clear out of this move to the united nation is very legitimate and we hope that this will reflect itself on the vaulting by the european governments and but of to a lot of both france and britain the americans have asked us and the israelis to
start of. the talks which we did but the direct talks which we did the indicted talks which we did. have decided to end the freeze of settlements and what they're called the moratorium on this issue has totally bush the whole talks into total collapse even by companies that has said that the jewish settlements in that but as you know that there is an obstacle to peace they are not legitimate and so on we ask them today the european union the united states israel is announcing the southern months and what are you going to do about it so i think this is the question for the entitlement community there is. every day violating beside three months by evaluating international legitimacy violating all resolutions that are related to united nation the question is what is it that the international community is doing about it we hope that the definition of community does not going to new or to deal with is that i as
a spoiled kid of the. some european cup because. it is putting i hopes on the security council was peter lavelle and his cross talk yes but the organizations credibility under scrutiny full program coming up at eleven g.m.t. here's a preview of that. you know it's a proposed hypothetical that tomorrow the united states of the united kingdom decide to go on a war and the united nations security council doesn't give that you know there's a russia or china or whoever vetoing that particular decision then they decide to step so the united nations and go to war regardless what can the united nations do in reality they can do absolutely nothing and that is where the problem is we were absolutely i agree with you inside that if i don't know that i should like it. you know because i do think before we become made to reduce this to a debate about whether colonialism still persists in attitude or fact one should not neglect the other half the other three quarters of the united nations which is
doing humanitarian aid around the world where the united nations is the central organizing mechanism for the delivery of food aid for famine for post war conflict . blaggard the un using the security council as the only face of the u.n. whatever once you get over that it's a real reductionism. and. take a look now at some other stories making headlines across the globe the yemeni ministry of defense has announced it has killed a u.s. born terrorist mastermind anwar al wiki that was allegedly involved in a number of attacks on the u.s. including the failed times square bombing last year and the fort hood shooting rampage in two thousand and nine. had said to be was said to be on the cia's priority target list and his death follows the number of failed attempts on his
